I saw this posted on jw dot org yesterday. I didn’t realize they were going to be filming this in Australia.
Anyone have any thoughts on this or knows more about it.

The first time they announced that they were going to be doing a series about Jesus’ life and ministry l was excited, but now so much has happened since then...

Honestly if you think about it that show titles pretty messed up essentially crediting Jesus as the writer and director of the show. No canonical gospel (good news) was "according to jesus" but rather an apostle, disciple or first century Christian this title essentially elevates the production and GB over the apostles and their work from which it derrives.

@The God Pill

Yes, I agree, I thought it looked rather odd to see it posted like that. Once again WT does that to draw attention back to them. 🥺

They are making this in part for those that will be resurrected. I can’t begin to tell you how delusional the GB is that they think that Jehovah forgot to think of ways to educate those that will be resurrected. I saw on a different forum talk about how we must have ipads after Armageddon and how the GB has to buy the right of Apple and Google to use tablets then. Oh and the batteries won’t run empty cause Jehovah made sure the jews kept their shoes and clothes intact during the 40 years in the desert, so he can keep those tablets charged.

Literally, I got nothing 😵‍💫

@Sunshower

Oh No! You’re kidding right? Did the GB actually make that claim?
And if so, there should be another mass exodus taking place real soon!

P.S. And since they are so delusional they probably are thinking that’s how they are going to be able to keep track of everyone, including those who come back in the resurrection. 😵‍💫

I have to wonder if this is another step in the direction of going full “Zoom” with all spiritual food being dispensed electronically like a televangelist ministry. And, I also have to wonder if this will tie into the strange, impractical and illogical instructions. But for sure it is a way to get more accolades. No doubt they are not far from discarding the bible in favor of their videos.

I've said it before but if they got an actor to pretend to be Jesus to deceive people and prop up there perceived authority/endorse anything they say at, around or shortly after the point in time christ manifest to the genuine annointed it wouldn't surprise me.

This reminds me of the hotel" (housing) that they built to house the resurrected patriarchs.

Beth Sarim (Hebrew בית שרים "House of the Princes") is a ten-bedroom mansion in San Diego, California, constructed in 1929 in anticipation of various resurrected Old Testament biblical patriarchs or prophets such as Abraham, Moses, David, Isaiah and Samuel. It was maintained by the Watch Tower Society, the parent organization used by Jehovah's Witnesses, and was also used as a winter home and executive office for Watch Tower president Joseph Franklin Rutherford. The house was sold to a private owner in 1948.

I believe that much our time then will be spent UNDOING EVERYTHING.
I've thought about this a lot too. Everything done in this system is motivated by any number of evil intent. Greed, control, appealing to selfishness etc. We only use a triny fraction of our brain, so untapping more of our brain's abilities I think will come pretty quickly. Anything we create in the New system will be superior. Roads could be eliminated with personal flight vehicles. We would need somewhere to land, but something like a helicopter has a pretty small footprint. And the things we make will last hundreds of years without breaking down.

I frequently ponder life during the 1,000 years (which will not be paradise until AFTER the final test removes all of the troublemakers). I believe that much our time then will be spent UNDOING EVERYTHING. Every building, every road, every bridge that's still standing, or the remnants thereof, will be removed. I cannot believe we will keep ANYTHING that Satan or his world built in paradise. Every building code, every construction material was part of his world. Why would we keep it? Plus, I think it would make Satan pretty upset after he's released from the abyss only to find that everything he built is gone! I have no scriptural backing for that. I just like the idea.
My husband always says: “Why wouldn’t Jehovah just open up the earth like he did with Korah and whole cities can just disappear.”
And that seems really logical. We wouldn’t gave to clean up New York’s sewer system that way 😉

And you know what else I think we'll get rid of? The Internet. So tablets and streaming media are not going to work without that. Are the angels going to fill in as USB chargers, 5G towers, and IT departments? Will they build more tablets for the billions of resurrected ones or should we just share? Maybe we'll pass a basket with a "five tablets and a few small USB chargers" and holy spirit will miraculously produce enough tablets for everyone. Will the videos be translated by holy spirit into whatever ancient language the student speaks? Maybe we'll all speak Hebrew and the videos will be miraculously translated into that language?

Call me crazy, but maybe our lord and King, Jesus, along with with immortal co-rulers and priests, will be able to come up with more interesting ways to put holy spirit to use by projecting instructions into the air or use some other amazing idea that doesn't depend on something Satan's old world built. How about the hand that appeared before Belshazzar? Maybe the stone tablets given to Moses? Could we have something amazing like that? Not some bug-riddled technology that was built by slave labor and a man that didn't believe in God.

I could go on with this rant but I'll stop now. Sorry.
Yeah, there are more and more things like this that just leave me scratching my head 🤔. I understand that they are humans and want to enjoy the comforts of life. We all do. But just be honest and admit it. "I want a vacation home in SoCal"..."I want a stash of high quality scotch to swill in the evening." There's no shame in that...own it! Stop sneaking around and then acting like you're Jesus in front of the public telling the rest of us to live a simple life.
I can understand why some people just end up viewing the entire thing as a sham and walk away from it all. I guess that is the test. Are we able to see past the imperfect humans and still see Jehovah? Are we able to discern the difference? Are we able to be long suffering, patient and wait for the correction?

It is not a stretch for me at all to say that for the members of this forum and all those who read it and who are even remotely aware of the real truth about our Org, the answers to your question Jah-son are Yes, Yes and Yes! God's will be done!

And that my friend is why we are all here, and so many in the org are not! We are honest with ourselves and honest about what is really going on. I think you just unwittingly identified one of the biggest problems the rank and file have. We have been so trained that there are so many things we cannot do, we are forced into a guilty conscience about the fact that we are indeed just humans. Some of us just got tired of it, and started rejecting it little by little, and more and more, until finally the reality of what WT and the GB is, could no longer be denied.

This is true. They think their version of reality is to be accepted no matter what. Even if evil is speckled about in it. I say NO! I will not accept that. They are not Jesus and they are not Jehovah. Address the evil in your midst and maybe I will take them serious. Being a wordsmith does not make them qualified to lead me.
